Biography
Jordan Budhu is currently a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Yahya Rahmat-Samii in the Antenna Research, Analysis, and Measurements (ARAM) laboratory. In 2010, he received the MSEE degree from California State University Northridge with Distinction. He enjoys skateboarding, riding motocross, and snowboarding. He and his dog, a purebred boxer Dakota, live in Westwood, CA currently.
Research Interests
His research interests include reflector antennas, reflectarray antennas, spaceborne antennas for planetary exploration, and computational electromagnetics, in particular, the Method of Moments and the Finite Difference Time Domain method. He is also vastly interested in the inner workings of the elegant universe, ever since he was a kid, he was always fascinated when he looked up at the night sky. He hopes to be able to apply his electromagnetics/antennas skillset to allow him to see the universe in ways his eyes cannot from earth.
